When Book Bloggers Go MIA…

Standard

blog

 

Before THE WAITING ROOM was released to Amazon, I did what every self-published author does: I emailed an ARC to any lovely book blogger who was willing to give it an honest review!

Many of them have been my #1 supporters–not just posting blogs, but hosting interviews, sharing on Twitter and Facebook, re-posting on Amazon and Goodreads, and more. These people have shown me more love than some of my own family and friends (sadly).

But what about those other book bloggers?

…you know, the ones who promised an honest review but then…disappeared faster than underage college kids when the cops show up to a frat party.

I mean, I sent you an ARC, man! And a follow-up email!

Is this just something indie authors have to live with? Am I rightfully bummed?

This review of THE WAITING ROOM made my day (which is amazing since I am exhausted and sunburned from a rather tiring beach trip)!

The Waiting Room on Amazon

If you’ve self-published, you probably know the exasperation of CreateSpace and Amazon.

In my case, I wanted to make sure my novel was out on July 1, the date which I’ve advertised everywhere. CreateSpace warns that the print process sometimes takes up to 5 days…so, of course, I uploaded 5 days before the 1st.

And then my book magically appeared on Amazon a day later. Friends and family excitedly posted on my Facebook and I deflated in my humid, Texas apartment.

“Well….better early than late!” My friend Nathan graciously pointed out. I drank three mimosas at brunch and decided to go ahead and let the world know: my book is available!

Saturday Night's Alright for Writing

I started this blog a few months ago for me. It was just somewhere for me to put my writing in case I wanted someone to see it. I have almost 100 followers now (which might not seem like much, but I never expected it) and if that many people are interested in what I have to say, I think it’s time for me to give this blog a little structure and consistency.

So for the next two weeks, it’s going to be running on bare bones (I really do hope that’s a saying) while I get set up for a complete blog overhaul. Nothing major is going to change – I will still be blogging reviews, writing about reading and sharing teasers. What is changing is my goals, or rather now I’m actually going to have goals. Hopefully it will give me more direction in what I’m reading and what…

Texan teacher and upcoming author Alysha Kaye has written a short novel which will definitely make you question everything you believe in. That’s exactly what happened to me, and I am so glad it did.

Interview with Acclaimed Novelist Joyce T. Strand

Standard

Fair Disclosure

I connected with Joyce through WLC (World Literary Cafe).

She had posted an amazing offer- an opportunity for authors to be featured on her blog!

Of course, I jumped at the chance. Joyce has written and published THREE novels (I know, jealous). They’re all on my Goodreads to-read shelf and I can’t wait to check them out.

Read more about her and check out my full author interview on her blog!
